The Strix does have a 500W VBIOS setting out of the box without touching the power slider. The FE, and I assume the other $1599 cards, have a 450W VBIOS power setting out of the box.

I'm guessing that extra 50W of power may have something to do with it. But yeah, the asking price for 3% more performance isn't worth it IMO.
It's not really a backchannel thing. It's just an extra parameter in the URL that automatically puts you in queue as soon as page loads. I'll post it here in a minute.So you need some back channel bullshit to get an FE card now? What a fucking joke.
Wasn't really bots that got them - most bots were caught flat-footed since BB changed password requirements (when logging in from a different IP that BB doesn't recognize, they now require password changed to a unique password- this tweak alone broke most bots).Yes I saw that too. So IMO they all sold to bots. If not, why would the verbiage switch at launch time.
Noise could be a thing. The strix is Compton silent at full load from reviews I seen. I haven't seen anything on the Gigabyte one.
Wait the card didn't fit with a side mounted radiator in the XL? Did you have both the fans and radiator on the inside? I know I can't fit a 4090 in my XL without putting a water block on it. I have a 3080ti with a WB and it runs against the res/pump I have mounted on the side fans.
Why the fuck there is Michigan in state list Lmao. Couldn't do it cuz there was MI wasn't in drop down on my phone lmao. Now its OOS. BestBuy has been dropping them as well but no luck there. It seems to go out in no time there. One is always waiting in line.Legit, seems to be working.
I had it in push pull on the inside.Wait the card didn't fit with a side mounted radiator in the XL? Did you have both the fans and radiator on the inside?

wait I got a hx1500i so I only need to use one cable coming out of powersupply with 2 8 pins to get 600w with this? if so Grabbing one for the heck of it lmao.Corsair 600W power adapter back in stock - FYI
Yeah - I had to use a USB-C cable for video. DisplayPort didn’t even work on the card until NVIDIA drivers were installed.
Thank you for posting this. Was able to get one after pretty much all day trying. I will agree that BB is a joke when it comes to ordering a fresh release such as this.Gigabyte has some in their shop if you want it
You had a prior card? I built my rig and was only using APU until I could get a 4090.It is so weird. I couldn't even get into the bios before resetting cmos to restore iGPU and actually plugging a monitor into the iGPU.
That's going to be a monster upgrade.I ended up getting the gigabyte 4900 OC. The sites were getting hammered and glitching, I grabbed whatever I could and ended up getting the gigabyte from newegg and the MSI from bestbuy. 2 cards! I hung on to them a bit just to make sure an order wouldn't get cancelled due to a glitch and then I cancelled the MSI card at bestbuy. Sure I could have sold it for more but that's a dick move. Better if someone else can have a shot at it.
I'm upgrading from a 980ti. So I really needed this!
It fits the XL fine. I had a 360 rad on the side with 2 stacks of fans causing about 1/2” of interference height wise.Dang man. Irony is it fits the mini, LOL.
Ah nice. Lian Li has some nice rad hiding spots. The 011 Mini can take a 280MM rad - up to 3 of them.It fits the XL fine. I had a 360 rad on the side with 2 stacks of fans causing about 1/2” of interference height wise.
I could have just put one set of fans on the back side, but moved it to the top since the 3080 rad was coming out.
Though I would love to change to a 240 aio and get your case. That looks sweet.
I'll pick one up eventually, between the 4090 and the 7950x. I've spent enough for now lol.Ever consider the vertical GPU bracket? I think it would give it enough space between the gpu the radiator & fans.
